Route 211 to 211
This is a variation of the popular Gap to Gap training run, which is a marathon covering miles 70 to 96 of MMT. Don’t let the “short” distance fool you, though — there are challenges aplenty including Big Run, Kern’s Mountain, and Bird Knob. Because Crisman Hollow Road is usually closed in winter, we start and finish this run at the Route 211 Parking Lot.
Runners will be asked to bring an assigned food/drink item for the community aid. We could also use a few volunteers to man the aid stations and stoke the fire ring at the finish. Contact Mike Bur if you’d like to volunteer.
This is an event with very real risks to your well being. The VHTRC does not provide medical care for runners at this event. Runners are responsible for their own health, safety, and well being at this event. No doctors, nurses, or emergency medical technicians, or anyone with any medical training are available along the course, at any aid station, or at the finish. The club does not supply any medical goods or services, including bandages, splints, antiseptic, or Ibuprofen or any other drugs to maintain the health of runners. Physical, medical, and emergency care is the runners' responsibility. In case of an emergency, we will endeavor to get local emergency personnel to an injured runner as soon as possible. Since most of our events are in remote areas, medical care may be far away in distance or time. Each year, runners finish — or are forced to drop out — with scrapes, deep cuts, hematomas, dislocations, and sprains. Runners have experienced cuts, bruises, bee stings, and asthma attacks. This is an event with very real risks.
